Tignes Ski Holidays

A very snowsure ski resort with the highest ski-able glacier in Europe, and one of the widest varieties of terrain available. All levels and abilities will love what Tignes and the Espace Killy have to offer.   

 

Skiing & Snowboarding in Tignes


The Tignes resort offers ski and board holidays at altitude that most other resorts will never be able to match! Tignes is within one of the world’s highest and most snow-sure ski areas - Espace Killy - which appeals to all abilities from beginner to expert powder skiers.


Tignes is famous for its excellent high altitude snow and the famous Grande Motte Glacier which has year-round Summer ski and snowboarding with stacks of powder and fresh snowfalls all year long!

  • Very snow sure resort
  • Large Ski Area - 300kms
  • Great for intermediate and advanced skiers/boarders
  • World class Off Piste for all levels (Guides available)
  • Over 50 bars, lots of nightlife and shopping. Great for non skiers
Tignes eye of the needle

Tignes the Resort


We have many chalets in Tignes le Lac but many of our catered chalets are also part of an exclusive new development in Tignes Les Brevieres. Tignes Les Breveieres is the original old town of Tignes and so it has all the same high altitude slopes - but is a much prettier place to stay, and in fact one of the more characterful high altitude resorts with some stunning architecture.


Tignes is famous for its excellent high altitude snow, largely due to the Grand Motte which plays host to the highest ski-able Glacier in France. However, the unfortunate fact about Tignes is that it is rather an ugly resort that has fallen foul of the high-rise concrete revolution of the 1960s!


The solution very much lies in Tignes Les Brevieres. Les Brevieres is the original old town of Tignes which oozes alpine charm and consists of lovingly restored and converted farmhouses to exclusive new and tasteful chalet developments. Yet the real beauty of this village lies in its snow sure slopes and high altitude, allowing guests to enjoy premium skiing of a Glacial 'super resort' without the ugliness that goes with it!


The nightlife in Tignes is very good indeed, with a few late night bars and pubs on offer in Les Brevieres. There is also a small nightclub for those wanting a more hedonistic apres ski!


We also have chalets in Tignes Le Lac - the busier part of the resort where there is an abundance of activites, shops, vibrant nightlife and access in minutes to some of the best ski slopes in the world.


Tignes Le Lac is a very convenient and user friendly resort not only for the slopes but for its numerous apres ski and non skiing activities. It benefits from having 57 bars and brasseries, 4 clubs and a plethora of shops. It has something to suit everyone's tastes from ice diving for adrenaline junkies to a more relaxed pace of life for those who want to be pampered in style in the resorts spa centres.

The Slopes in Tignes


The slopes in Tignes are characteristically wide, long lasting and highly efficient. All in all, this allows for some effortless skiing for all abilities, less slope congestion and not so much waiting in the lift queues! The slopes are immaculately kept and link very well with neighbouring Val D’Isere to offer a superb variety of steeper descents and networks of easier runs for the progressive intermediates to cover some mileage. See our Ski Holidays Val d isere page for more information on the Val d'Isere side of the mountain


The advanced skiers will revel in the Off Piste opportunities around Tignes, and the wide, open expanses of terrain which are perfect in the powder and don’t get tracked out too quickly. Some of these border the national park, and can be extraordinarily quiet, especially those routes down to Les Brevieres.


For Ski or Snowboarding Holidays in general - then you really can't better the variety of Tignes! The slopes are very suitable to all levels of Snowboarder and the Pipe and Park in Tignes is legendary. It usually has permanent shapers and is cut and groomed by people who really know how to use Pipe Dragons! The park is maintained daily and so it is usually in very good condition, with a range of jumps for all abilities.


All levels of rider can enjoy the Freeriding in Tignes, with some really interesting features and terrain, combined with high altitude snow, which makes for some epic riding. It is the opportunity for serious powder riding that makes Tignes an unbeatable destination for many, and is often where the fun can really start!


Beginner Skiing Tignes


Tignes is very good for a beginner skiing holiday. Beginners are able to progress very quickly from the highly accessible nursery slopes in Tignes centre to a gentle network of well kept green runs which make up the local area. The nurseries are also operated by a slow chairlift which allows beginners to improve with confidence in the early stages and away from their ski or snow board schools. The atmosphere for beginners is also very easy going.
